Hey guys, so it has been a week since this happened and I cannot cope with it any more. All devices connected to it are affected. I'm no expert in internet networking and need help immediately as it is affecting my assignments.

Router/Modem - DLink 750b

Trace complete.

1. It happened before but only for like a day so I assumed it was the ISP because it never happened again until last week. It happens every time of the day, even tried power cycling.

2. I used both ethernet and wifi and the problem was still there.

Hmmm, the internet seems to be working now but I have feeling it's not gonna be for long. I'll get back to ya when the problem comes back, I have a feeling it has to do with QoS and WMM.

Yup, it's playing up again.

Yes, I use regional ADSL2+ and live about 3km away from the exchange.

Somehow I kinda feel it's the router's fault, not too sure if that's the case.
 
Unfortunately, it's quite likely that it's a backhaul problem between the exchange and your ISP. Rural exchanges tend to have very poor backhaul, and once that gets saturated the queues start to pile up.

Calling up your ISP is probably the best bet - they can get a network upgrade underway if it's at capacity, or fix it if it's a config issue.

How long has it been doing this for?

About a week, and yeah you're probably right.

When I run diagnostics it usually say the following (when it is working):

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR LOCAL NETWORK
-Test your eth1 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth2 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth3 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth4 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your Wireless Connection: PASS

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR DSL SERVICE PROVIDER
-Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
-Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: FAIL
-Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: PASS

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
- Ping default gateway: PASS
- Ping primary Domain Name Server: PASS

When it is not working or slow:

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR LOCAL NETWORK
-Test your eth1 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth2 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth3 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your eth4 Connection: FAIL (Nothing Connected)
-Test your Wireless Connection: PASS

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR DSL SERVICE PROVIDER
-Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
-Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: FAIL
-Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: FAIL

TEST THE CONNECTION TO YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
- Ping default gateway: FAIL
- Ping primary Domain Name Server: FAIL

Just wondering, by any chance could this be the modem router's fault?
